                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About: I have lived in Alaska over 15 years and continue to explore the Alaska wilderness by foot and by canoe. I am an avid gardener and I love to work in my greenhouse growing new and different types of vegetables.

                  Why Hope:
                  I designed this house to be a welcome gathering place for friends, so I hope you will find it as peaceful and comfortable as I do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Hope is an unbelievably beautiful place with all the history and wildlife to make it the quintessential Alaskan town.
